I’ve loved reading and writing romance since I bought a Nora Roberts book for $0.25 at a garage sale in high school and discovered the love story didn’t have to be the subplot. Mind. BLOWN. Since then I’ve ghostwritten independently published contemporary romance novels for various clients. My first novel under my own name, The Last Big Fake, was published by Boroughs Publishing Group in April 2021.

I’m currently pursuing an MFA in creative writing at The New School.

I’m also the co-founder at Sonder & Spark Publishing, a digital romance publisher centering love stories about community, adventure, and a bit of rebellion.

Prior to a certain pandemic, I worked in the arts as a marketing associate at two of Oregon’s largest performing arts companies (Portland Center Stage at the Armory and Oregon Ballet Theatre). I helped each story find its perfect audience via social media, earned media, partnerships, and advertising. More importantly, I learned from all sorts of fierce, funny, brave, transformative storytellers. I’m passionate about using storytelling to bring more joy and hope into people’s lives.

I hold a BA from American University in political science, with a minor in communications, and work with Women for the Win and Her Bold Move.
